K is for Kohlrabi

Kohlrabi gets its name from the German words "Kohl" meaning cabbage and "rabi" meaning turnip. That’s why it is also called the cabbage turnip. Kohlrabi is really a round swollen stem that has leaves. It is eaten both raw and cooked after the outside skin has been peeled away. It tastes sort of like broccoli, radish and cucumber all together.
